It’s no secret that the holidays are a great time to reach out to your clients past, present and prospective. The challenge is doing something so neat that it makes them stop for a second and soak it in. It’s moments like this that keep you top of mind should they need the products or services you offer.

By now you hopefully understand that your business should have some sort of Web presence. These days, customers and clients are looking for YOU and you need to be accessible. Putting your business in the phone book doesn’t cut it anymore and in reality, the Web has replaced these old school methods with tools like Google, Facebook and Yelp. Now we can type in key words and find exactly what we’re looking for with an abundance of information, images and reviews that give us a pretty solid impression about who we’re dealing with.

We stumbled across this website today and thought it was so fun! Yeah, it’s flash, but flash can be COOL! So much of it is interactive and even has a tweeting Jim bird. It is so reminiscent of Jim and his work and really draws you in. Our only beef is that the pages take a while to load and some of the images could be more crisp. All in all though, Bravo Jimbo!

I hate to shout, but this darn browser is a tad frustrating. Internet Explorer, a.k.a. IE, can be a real pain to optimize a website for and there are even designers who won’t optimize for the browser at all.

The font you use for marketing materials says a lot to the masses about you. If you use a font like Papyrus or Comic Sans, you’re probably getting made fun of… Just sayin. Take heed the advice of your designer for acceptable and up-and-coming fonts.
It’s not just a battle between marketers and designers pushing the fresh fonts and the consumers holding on to the overused fonts, it’s really a battle of raising the standard or giving in. Fonts have a job to do, a message to portray and a responsibility to resonate. Whether it’s body text or a wordmark logo, there is a purpose behind your designer’s choices and don’t hesitate ask what that is. We get a kick out of talking shop to interested clients.
Now, for a little font humor, here’s Comic Sans Man!

Our latest project to hit the Web.
This was something “they” said couldn’t be done. Well we did it and it’s spreading across the US like wildfire since its launch on September 15. This project started out as an idea that LockedDoc founder Bryan Beasler brought to the table with confidence. We knew it was a fantastic concept once Andy and I analyzed and developed a work flow.
